His Advice to the Youths
There best way to succeed is to look at yourself as a solution provider and problem solver. Youth should identify their area of interest at youthful stage and start building through service. The best way to start your dream is by starting with no capital as you appreciate it progress when it comes. Youths should learn to volunteer to gain skills, knowledge, trust, connection and support. Youth should be ready to receive rejection, discouragement, disappointment and failures. Youths should be able to do the dirty jobs as they build their dreams from crash and always be more of servant leaders to their dreams not bosses.Youths should endeavor to have mentors or coach on their developing dreams. Youths should keep a positive relationship with families and friends despite their weakness. Youths should be patient, humble, dedicated and committed to their dreams. Youths should respect rules and regulations governing their activities. Youths should put God at the first place in everything they do or intend to do by drawing close to God daily in prayers and direction on their dreams. May God bless you all my Dear friends, family and Development Agents across Cameroon, Africa and the World.
